Weekend Wins & Watching CanAms

Two More Wins for the Season

The Furies wrapped up another weekend with two more wins on the books. The WPL side gave New York several gaps in the first half, allowing the visiting team to rack up a few tries. But in the second half the Furies dominated, putting enough points on the board to take home a 15-point lead win. Next on the field, the Furies D2 team crashed through the Georgetown Women’s rugby team. The Furies took advantage of their size and experience to defeat the energetic collegiate team, who did succeed in earning one try not to go pointless. After a weekend of games in disparate locales, the Washington Women showed that they can rack up the wins from far and near. While it wasn’t the best rugby the Furies have put forth, resulting in some sloppy play and harder games, both sides managed to work together to correct their mistakes and stay on top ’til the end.

Today is the first day of a Canadian-American series, as both international teams prepare for the Women’s Rugby World Cup in August.  The teams will meet twice this week, on Tuesday April 15 and Saturday April 19.  The Furies are proud to be represented amongst the elite players by Amanda Street and recent addition, Samantha Pankey. Fury alumna Jamie Burke will also be competing, for her 43rd cap for the US.  Good luck to all the players wearing the red white and blue!
